Halloween Ends (2022)


Release date: In cinemas across the country and on the Peacock platform on Friday, October 14, 2022.

Summary: In Halloween ends, Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) has finally found peace and left the entire spectrum of Michael Myers behind. When a young man, Corey (Rohan Campbell), is framed for killing a boy he was babysitting, unleashing a cascade of violence and terror that can only be the work of one person…Michael.

To monitor : There is a four-year gap between the end of halloween kills and this movie.

word on the street: Jamie Lee Curtis says this is the last time she will portray Laurie. However, she said this after a few other Halloween movies in the past.

My take: The original Halloween is one of my favorite horror movies of all time.

To monitor : The film was produced by Whoopi Goldberg, who also appears in the film as Alma Carthan.

To monitor: The cast includes Isabela Merced as Juliet, Kyle Allen as Romeo, Bradley Whitford as Adrian Capulet and Minnie Driver as Nurse Janet.

word on the street: The film had been in development for over ten years, with actors like Keira Knightley, Hailee Steinfeld, Deborah Ann Woll and Dave Franco all attached to the film at some point.

To monitor: The film is from director Claire Denis, award-winning filmmaker of Chocolate (1988) and high life (2018).

But she’ll need the help of the last person she wants to team up with, her father (Marlon Wayans).

To monitor : The very funny cast includes Nia Vardalos, Rob Riggle, Lauren Lapkus and Kelly Rowland.

My take: I love Lauren Lapkus, who played Denise, the girlfriend of comic book store owner Stuart on The Big Bang Theory.
